Here is the problem: Americans not qualified to be jurors

Much of the American public is now so intellectually superficial and sorely lacking in the ability to reason and evaluate truth or falsity based on evidence and inductive / deductive analysis ..

And so conditioned to react on social cues and emotion?

That they are not *qualified* to serve on a jury.

Thank god to this point I have never been accused of a serious crime, because being at the mercy of a jury composed of average American's is equivalent to being at the mercy of a coinflip.

I can't imagine how many innocent people are in jail based on the verdict of shallow thinking sheeplike juries that can't evaluate clear evidence without it being pre-digested and "interpreted for them"

IMO this is one of the main, overlooked lynchpins of why there is no longer any real justice left here.

9/11 proves it without a shadow of a doubt.
